The secretary (Mr. Pal . mer), was instructed to bring "Roach dale" under the notice of tlie Closer Settlement Board. Some local mat ters were attended to.
Decentralisation. THE NEED OF THE MOMENT. OUR RAILWAY SYSTEM. CHOKING THE COUNTRY. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
a a Decentralisation. » THE NEED OF THE MOMENT. " ODE RAILWAY SYSTEM. CHOKING THE COUNTRY. s a I. Decentralisation must be recognised as one of the most important mat ters of tlie present day. The cir cumstance that a Decentralisation Commission is at present investiga ting is some evidence that recogni tion is dawning. Some day, perhaps, that Commission may make a report. In the meantime, suppose we consider a few things. To none is decentralisation of greater importance than the farmers of this State. That is a big state ment! We know it. Looking round at the problems that confront the producer, the many vexatious, weari some things that go to make his track a tough one to get along, we repeat that he has to print DECEN TRALISATION in bold big type on his brain box, so that he won't for get it. Because it is pre-eminently a coun try problem, the country folk will mostly have to solve it oif their own bat. There are some solid interests that may have to be bumped, and the politicia...

Stock HORSE-BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
HORSE-BREEDING. When you come to think of it we are a' funny crowd. That Australia can breed liorses of the best is not a matter for much argument. Yet the New Zealand papers just now are leaning back with a pleased smile, and announcing that the export trade in draught horses to this country, has revived. It has. Several big mobs of draughts have .come through Syd ney . and- Melbourne, or are on the way. In fact, it would surprise a lot of people to know how many horse's are put up here for a few days to "find their legs" after the trip across from the Dominion. They sell well. The Maorilanders. are not in the game, for fun, and ; they fire a people used to good prices. It is a great business irom their. standpoint. "But not so from ours. We have to pay. Why should we? Admitted that it will be desirable to import high-class stallions periodi 'cally from colder countries to keep up the standard, it surely does not ? follow that we - should-have - to- ex' port horses for the plough a...
AN UNWISE POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
AN UNWISE POLICY. j -Mr. C. Sanderson, the veterinary I surgeon of the Stock Department, in !a recent lecture, at Dap to, on tuber culosis, pointed out, and rightly too, [the fact that "while the Government jwas Avilling and ready to combat and [treat flocks affected, and deal "with i affected areas, the stock-farmer so joften fearful that the sale of his (stock . might he affected, instead of jbringing the -outbreak. under notice (of the department, carefully smother ed up the news, ; until in most cases jit had spread, and concealment be icame impossible. Such really was a jshort-sighted policy to pursue, for in jthe long run the sale of ' the cattle i in a whole run might be spoilt. The. Maitland Chamber of Com merce, having discussed the sugges tion that local abattoirs should be established, passed the following re Jsolution:-"That it be suggested to i the West Maitland Municipal Coun .cil that a conference of the munici pal and shire councils of the Mait land district, togethe...
PEAK HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
PEAK HILL. A special meeting of this branch which was very fully attended, was held on Tuesday to deal with the claims of the R.W.U. After a very lengthy discussion a schedule of rates for that district was determined up on. During the discussion, Mr. Words worth, in speaking, condemned the proposed claim in regard to hours of labour, as unworkable, as a crop had to be taken off as quickly as pos sible. He gave figures to show that it would take nine bushels to pay expenses, and all a farmer would have on a 500-acre crop with a 12 bushel average, would be £91 net return. In regard to wheat-lumping, the claim made was regarded as rea sonable. It was decided to invite Mr. J. O'Neil to meet the members at their next meeting, when it is hoped to have representatives present from the Mungery and Tomingley branches.

A FIGHTING FUND. Mr. John Jb'Ianagan, of Gunbar, writes:-"Just a word about my fel low worker of the old Free' Selectors* Association, Mr. B. B. Bennett. I can assure him that such letters as his are much required. The farmers are a close-fisted lot, who are as blind as a mole to their own interests. But, although seeming slow, I am sure they will be all there with their de fence fund. Why, my dear brother Bennett, I am 75, and still mean to fight on for the good of the nation while I live."

NEW USE FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
NEW USE FOR MILK. Various are the uses of milk, but the. latest proofs of its virtues are amongst the most wonderful yet re corded, and no time should be lost by our medical men in putting to the test, if, perchance, they have not al ready done so, the value of milk as an external curative agent. It is stated that a physician in the Trans vaal, knowing that milk absorbs poisonous germs that are exposed to it, conceived the idea of applying it externally to people alilicted with fever and skin diseases. The patient is wrapped in a sheet that lias been saturated with milk, and then a hot blanket is put oround the person, and kept for an hour. Then the clothing is removed, and the patient is sponged with warm water in a room as hot as can be borne. A case of smallpox thus treated had most of the poison taken out of the skin, and the patient was placed on the road to recover within twenty four hours. This remedy acts so quickly that its successful operation in the case of fever will rec...
PLOUGHING BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 7 April 1911
PLOUGHING Bf ELECTRICITY. Electric ploughing outfits, each cap able of ploughing from ten to twenty five acres daily with the small plough, 25 to 35 acres with a larger one, are a German novelty. A single motor, of 38 to 72 horse-power, is used, and a complete equipment includes a mo tor truck, driving rope, anchor ve hicle, automatically moving rope sup ports, plough, electric cable, and cable car. The 1000 to 3000 feet of spe cially armoured rubber-covered cable supplying the current is carried on an outrigger of the truck, or in the greater lengths on the cable car. The electric motor on the truck can be coupled either to the rear wheels of the vehicle or to the drum driving: the rope, and a special device automa tically stops the motor if the ten sion on the rope becomes excessive.. A pulley on the anchor vehicle is re lieved of the load of the rope wheni the plougu moves back to the motor truck. This slackening of the ropes; causes the pulley's rotation to act up on the anchor ...
